“Barbie Doll” Han Chae-young is taking the lead in a Korea-New Zealand co-production, Soul Mate, to be directed by New Zealander Scott Reynolds (When Strangers Appear).
Backed by New Zealand production company Eyeworks Touchdown and a Korean film house, Soul Mate is a horror movie telling the story of an Asian woman living in New Zealand, who becomes entangled with ghosts and dead spirits. The film will be entirely English-language, which Han’s management feels will open the possibility of aiding her toward Hollywood. Let’s not put the cart before the horse, fellas. Han Chae-young did live in the States and speaks English, but still has a very thick accent and limited fluency, from what I can see in interviews.
Reynolds plans to be in attendance at the upcoming Pusan International Film Festival, which we’ll be hearing a lot about this week, I can assure you.
